I'm not 100% sure, but I think the password is actually programmed into the bios of the router, so you can't change it...could be wrong.
If someone is using your router, they must be aware of your password, remove the password sticker off your router and keep it in a safe place
By default, the firewall on it should block all incoming connections from the WAN or internet network port (good thing). Make sure you do two things : 1. Change the default password on the router, and 2. secure your wireless using WPA2 for authentication and AES or TKIP for encryption. Also, rename your SSID to something that doesn't give away that fact that your router is a buffalo. I'm paranoid, so I donot broadcast my SSID...if you are too, then this is a good option.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
If you've forgotten the wireless security key you entered when you set up the router you can reset it by connecting to the router directly with an ethernet cable instead of the wi-fi. Plug a cable into the router and then laptop and access the setup page for the router. See the manual (or download one from the buffalo site) for setup instructions.
To get the network key of your wireless network, you will need to access the rotuerset up.
Is there any computer conencted to the router with the cable ?
If not then is there any computer online through the same router wirelessly ?
You can open the set up page on the working computer.
If you do not have any other computer online then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable. Click Here for more info about how to find the network key
Hi...is this tip any help to you? You only need part (1) 'Retrieving a lost Network Key' - this is the key/password Windows asks for when you try to connect wirelessly. (Skip part 2..).
You can pick up a manual from the Buffalo site if you need one. I think the router IP address may be http://192.168.11.1 and default password is blank (ie no password), but you would need to check your manual to be sure.
After unpacking your Buffalo wireless router, connect the ethernet
cable from your jack to the rightmost ethernet port on the back of the
router. This is the blue WAN port labeled "Internet". Next, use another
ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router, using any of the 4
remaining open ethernet ports on the back. Finally, plug the AC adapter
into the power port on the router and plug it into the wall.
Once the router has been plugged into the network and powered on,
the power light will come on and the other status lights on the front
will go through a series of flashes. Once the leftmost diagnostic light
labeled "Diag" has gone off and the light labeled "Router" has come on,
this means your router has been initialized and is connected to the
Now open a web browser window and enter 192.168.11.1 in the URL
field and press enter. You will get a prompt to enter a username and
password to access your router settings. You should enter "root"
(without quotes) as the username and leave the password field blank,
then click OK. You are now taken to a page where you can configure your
Buffalo wireless router.
Click on the Admin Config button on the top right of this page.
Enter a name for your AirStation and click Apply. Wait for the router to
restart with the new setting, you may have to refresh your browser
Next click on the Password button in the small row of choices
under Admin Config. The Administrator name is fixed as "root" however,
you should now choose an Administrator Password (8 characters or less)
and enter it in the two fields provided, then click Apply. Wait for the
router to restart, and you will be prompted to login with the username
"root" and the new password you just set up. If you choose a password
over 8 characters long, you will be unable to login and will have to
reset your wireless router by using the pinhole on the bottom.
Next click on the Wireless Config button on the top, third from
left. In the small row of choices under Wireless Config, click
Basic(11g). Make sure the box labeled Enable next to the Wireless Radio
setting is checked. For the SSID setting, switch to the second choice
Use: and then choose a name for your wireless network. You should write
this name down and keep it near your wireless router in case you forget
it. Click Apply.
Next click on the Security(11g) choice under Wireless Config along
the top of the page. For the Wireless Authentication setting, select
WPA/WPA2 mixedmode - PSK. For the WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key) field, choose
a password that is between 8 and 63 characters (letters and numbers
only) and enter it here. Click Apply.
Your Buffalo wireless router will restart and is now configured to connect securely to the Internet.
